If you have a black interior, the color for the dash is "black metallic". You can purchase this paint in a spray can from National Parts Depot. I used this on two of my cars and the finish looks great. Hope this helps.

Russ,
Did you take the camera case finish down to the bare metal (plastic) and primer before painting?
Thanks, Robert

The camera case finish is a satin black finish, which is different finish than the metal portion of the dash. I did not take the paint off the camera case plastic, but painted over this area with a "Satin Black" color. You can use Krylon Semi Flat Black or Rust-Oleum Satin Black for a great finish. I have found that the Rust-Oleum brand is a bit more durable, but Krylon dries faster. Both products give the desired finish.

As a side note, these paints are also excellent for refinishing the engine compartment and the undersides of the fender area that are supposed to be painted black. Hope this helps,
Russ
